Hello Readers


Coming out of the summer, our September edition can always be a toss-up. We usually feature all the Cabbagetown festival stuff…but the Bia has something exciting planned. We received some great articles from lots of people, and I can’t stress enough that sharing articles and letting people know you read the paper is what keeps the PSN going.

We have the big election issue coming up in October, the deadline is Sept. 29th. Our big holiday extravaganza / Giving guide deadline is mid-November. Thanks as always to our advertisers. We can’t share stories from the community without your ongoing dedication to the community.

Remember that we will print almost anything so please send along your reviews, gripes, opinions and shoutouts. It keeps the paper exciting and, as we like to say: it is a great way to connect with the community. All the best

We obviously can’t do it

without our contributors and advertisers. Thanks to  all of you. If you are reading an article please let them know you saw it and share it wherever you can it helps everyone and keeps

the paper going.
